Hi All,

I'm working with an XHTML version of a statistics textbook from Cengage (via MindTap) and cannot seem to get Jaws, or any screen reader for that matter, to recognize the mathematical content. It is supposed to. I've tried using the text-to-speech tool (Readspeaker) built into the MindTap application. I've tried using Jaws 16 with both IE8 and IE11. Although Mathplayer works in IE8, the MindTap website will not render properly. Although the MindTap application renders properly in IE10 or IE11, Mathplayer will not work. I've also tried ChromeVox and Chrome, although the student has no experience using either application.

If you have any suggestions on what I am doing wrong, I would love to be enlightened. Thanks in advance for any suggestions you might have.
